Contest

Look at the newest in both the Star Trek and Star Wars poster lines from the Alamo's Mondo and perhaps win a set!

Published at: Oct. 21, 2010, 2:32 p.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. There has long been a divide between fans of Star Trek and Star Wars, a sci-fi geek civil war where nerd brother fought nerd brother. Chaos. Insanity. A rollercoaster ride of ups and downs. In the '80s Star Wars ruled supreme but for brief pockets of Trek punching through, ultimately dominating sci-fi TV once again in the void that Return of the Jedi left. It's not an easy war, horrors on both side, be it The Phantom Menace of The Final Frontier. I personally grew up a Star Wars kid, but I'd blanch at the thought of picking whether Wrath of Khan or The Empire Strikes Back would be erased from existence. Ricardo Montalban's iconic villainous turn or Vader bitch choking half the Empire brass? Lord help me, but I'd let Khan fall off the cliff and save Empire, all Good Son style, but I'd feel super bad about it. What cruel movie god would make me chose between the two?!? I am no God, but I will be forcing you to make a choice if you want to win a set of Mondo's limited run of prints for their Star Trek and Star Wars poster lines. You're going to get a first look at these posters below. Let's see 'em before I tell ya' how exactly to win them! Both pieces are by artist Tom Whalen are limited to well under 300 prints. Ch-ch-check 'em out!



We're going to experiment with a different kind of contest for these, a talkback contest. I know, it's kinda scary, but you and me will brave it together. What I want from you is a declarative statement on which is superior, Star Trek or Star Wars. The catch is I want it in 10 words or less. If you wish to comment on the posters, the article or the topic feel free, but your submission should be one single talkback devoted to your statement. Dig? Mondo's been really good about keeping their contest open to people all over the world, so all you foreigners can have a shot at winning this impressive and very sought after set. Previous posters in both lines have sold out in a matter of minutes and have gone for big bucks on eBay, so think hard and come up with something incredibly true or incredibly funny. Or incredibly funny because it's true! You have 24 hours, from 2:30-ishpm CST today, Thursday October 21st, to 2:30pm CST tomorrow, October 22nd, to state your short case. I'll be reading over the talkbacks and will be consulting with the Mondo honcho Justin Ishmael on the winner. Make sure to keep an eye on the talkback, especially if your email address registered to the account isn't your main one, as I'll need to get in touch with you if you're the winner and get all your info. For those of you who just want to buy the poster, Mondo will be making an announcement sometime during the day tomorrow via their Twitter (@MondoNews) when the virtual stores open. Good luck everybody! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    Star Wars goes where no Star Trek has gone before

  • ...to people all over the world. Yeah, really good. Considering this is a paid for advertisement, I'd say that Mondo should consider themselves lucky that culturally rich nations outside of the US even bother to dedicate a second to looking at their photoshopped rehashes of old Sci-Fi movies. Fuck.

    More mediocrity from Mondo

    by ShiftyEyedDog2

    the Trek one is ok, the Star Wars one not so much. Most of these Mondo posters are fairly ugly, actually. I'm all for creative art and new takes on classics, but I've seen far FAR better.

    by ORIONgods

    Enterprise-D Main phasers: 3.6 GW (5.1 MW per emitter, 200 emitters in the main phaser array, 2 full-sized saucer arrays and 3 smaller roughly half-size arrays on the stardrive section, p.123). Note that phasers appear to have a chain-reaction effect so their raw power output may be deceptively low. Photon torpedoes: 64 megatons max theoretical (based on 1.5 kg antimatter payload, p.129) Sublight acceleration: 1000G (design goal, p.75) Operational range: 250,000 light-years (before refueling) Operational range: 2750 light-years (7 years at warp 6 before refueling, p.3) Shield heat dissipation: 3311 GW peak (473 GW per generator x 7 generators, p.13 Max warp speed: ~2000c (warp 9.6), sustainable 12 hours for a single sprint of roughly 3 light-years. This appears to have increased to roughly 3000c for newer ships such as the Intrepid-class.

    by TexasStorm

    It's awesome to watch Trek and TNG, and think how cool it would be to hang with these guys and go on adventures with them. But Star Wars makes you want to be a Jedi yourself; the best version of yourself possible. Being a Jedi means "I can help make the world a better place." Empire makes you want to fight back against the bullies, and Jedi makes you want to go out on a limb for your friends. Star Trek is entertainment; Star Wars is inspirational.

    Quality not quantity BrainDrain

    by TheUmpireStrokesBach

    Are you only counting the OT with that figure of 6 hours? If you included the rest of the theatrical films with all of the Clone Wars material and the Holiday Special you would end up at around 23 hours (more like 21.5 if you deleted the Holiday Travesty). It's debatable, but I would say the quality issue falls more in STAR WARS favor. With Trek you would have to subtract all of VOYAGER, ENTERPRISE, and at least NEMESIS from the quality debate. Just my opinion though.

    Final Frontier...

    by Disgustipitated

    At least Final Frontier was entertaining and it had some of the greatest character moments between the principles of any of the original crew Trek films (I'm referring to the campfire talk, specifically, among others...not the lame comedy pieces that the other cast members were forced to play out). Star Trek: Nemesis on the other hand was boring, tired, poorly written, poorly directed & ripped off Wrath of Khan's plot in the crappiest way possible. If they had wanted to do a "let's bring back someone from the captain's past" thing, they should have chosen someone or something that had an impact on his life, was significant in some way and that the fans would have actually recognized and given two poops about...oh, wait...that's right they did that already in the entertaining, but full of holes and poor plotting First Contact.

    Not an Entry, Just a Childish Comment:

    by ScruffyNerdHerder

    Rick Berman Raped My Childhood!!! At least when Lucas rapes us, it's the creator of the franchise doing it, not some hack who inherited an empire. In my sick twisted world, I'll give Lucas the respect for molesting me himself. Don't ask me to explain myself, cuz I'm just talking through my bleeding, DP'd bunghole.

    Here's what seem like the top nine...

    by JacobDaly

    <br>Star Wars goes where no Star Trek has gone before. <br>Luke sacrifices a hand to gain a father. A hand! <br>Star Trek never had a Christmas Special. <br>Because incest is always funny when its not your family. <br>Slave Leia is hot. Slave Uhura is racist! <br>I have been and always should be your friend. <br>Goofy ears versus three man one ton puppets. <br>Collecting Star Trek Action Figures? Didn't think so. <br>Star Wars didn't need a reboot.

  • Oct. 29, 2010, 9:20 a.m. CST

    Sorry for the delay

    by Quint

    I'll post it as its own story, but here is the winner: Yakface for "Star Trek Inspired Geeks, Star Wars inspired cinema." It's simple, but true. As tempted as I was to go with a funny entry (my favorite of the funny entries is charter's "Slave Leia is hot... slave Uhura is racist!") this one kind nailed the difference between the two franchises to me. No one can call into question Star Trek's influence on the genre, but I think Star Wars' influence was much wider and broader.<BR><BR>I'll include the ten or so runners up in the official post, but congratulations to Yakface! I've emailed him with the address he registered with. If I don't hear back from him via email or this talkback in the next 24 hours I'll go to my second favorite until I can reach a winner!
